So my female veiled chameleon is a juvenile now and I was wondering by the looks of it does she seem pregnant or sick?

Thank you and should I cover the soil with dirt ? Or moss?
Well if that is a lay bin pull it out... All plants should have the soil covered in 1 inch or larger river rock to keep him out of it. But I would fill out the form If you have a husbandry issue we can help you correct it. I would take him to the vet if you are suspecting health issues as well. IF he has been eating the soil it is an impaction risk.

Your Chameleon - Male Veiled Chameleon, 7-8 months old (very close estimation). hes been in my care for 6 1/2 months

Handling - once every 2 days, i only handle him if he comes to me when i open his enclosure.

Feeding - i feed him crickets mainly which i gutload with "Nature Zone Total Bites for Crickets" , he eats about 6 to 15 crickets a day and he doesn't eat if he's not hungry . once in a while ill give him one hornworm to munch on. i also stopped giving him mealworms since i read they are bad for chameleons.

Supplements - For calicum i use "Repti-Calcium without D3" and for vitamins i use "Zoo Meds Reptivite Reptile Vitamins" i dust the crickets with vitamins once every other feeding and i also dust 12 crickets with calcium once per week.

Watering -i use a dripper which i add 2 drops of reptisafe to remove chlorine and any other bad impurities. i mist 3 times a day for 1 minute. once in a while ill see him drink water.

Fecal Description - his poop was dark brown color and it had a light slime look, his pee color was white with a bit of yellow slime. he has not been tested for parasites yet.
